I'm continuing to build my prefix area with that change.
I think this should be ok. On purpose a new gcc is emerged early in the process.

On FreeBSD I also noticed that I needed this binutils 2.21-r1 version to get things going. I think you're wasting your time if you try again from scratch now. -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo on a different level
